How to get Discovered

by Anthony Smith

Man looking for candidates

Aspiring actors often ask, "How can I get discovered?" One way that many actors get discovered is they POSITION themselves to be discovered!

How is it that some people get discovered as actors? Why does it seem like they don't have to work so hard to get the attention of agents, directors and casting directors? Why do some people get all the good roles? There is a reason for everything!

It's easy to say, "They're just lucky." Or "They were just in the right place at the right time."

Aspiring Actors often ask the question "How can I get discovered?" The answer is simple and logical, but on the other hand being discovered as an actor it is far from easy to make happen. At the same time, however, let's not mislead anyone. Being discovered out of the blue without any preparation or without having done any work is about as likely as winning the multi million dollar lottery. Some people play all their lives and never win.

One way that many actors get discovered is... Are you ready? They POSITION themselves to be discovered! That's right, and here's how.

By POSITIONING yourself to be discovered I mean:
  1. Start training and don't stop no matter how good you think you are or how good others tell you are, so that when you do put yourself up in front of the right people, you will be ready!
  2. Study the industry. Find out how it works. Find out who casts what, what agents look for in an actor, what the unions do, what the current issues are in the industry, etc.
  3. Figure out what your type is. This is a concept you need to be familiar with! It will help you funnel you marketing efforts.
  4. Learn basic business, networking and self-promotional skills. So important! You need to make sure you stand out from everyone else. You need to be delicately tenacious as well!
  5. Learn how to audition. Auditioning and acting on set are two different beasts. Auditioning is like the serve in tennis. It's completely different from the rest of the game.
  6. Surround yourself with people who are already doing what you want and not with people who are trying to get what you want. You are more likely to learn from people who are already doing what you want to do. So go find them and learn from them!
  7. Talk to both working actors, who are making a living from acting as well as to aspiring actors who have been talking a lot over the past couple of years and really haven't done very much. You can learn from both groups! From one you learn what to do. From the other, you will learn how NOT to be.
  8. Stay curious and never ever think you know it all. Be humble. You can always get better, whether in your acting technique, auditioning, sharpening your monologue delivery, on-camera technique, learning about the industry or whatever. You never stop learning!
  9. Once you start to achieve some success, help others who are in the same position you were once. You'll see that it will pay off.
  10. At some point during all this you should ask yourself (and be honest) if you really, honestly and truly have the passion for acting to DO WHAT IS NECESSARY to succeed. Without that passion much will be lost and it will be difficult for you to achieve the success you desire. And what's more, you probably won't be very happy.
Once you do those things regularly, you will start to intuitively know how to position yourself to be discovered.

Hi... My name is Djonay. I am from Jamaica. I wish and need to become an actress. I am in high school. In Jamaica it is very hard to get discovered. I love acting. Every movie I watch I even act it out differently. (didn't mention that I love to sing). If I am acting I would love to act movies with people having magic and have tails (mermaids and mermen) or Disney movies. I really need to be discovered. This is my dream. I live and was born in Jamaica and I can't afford to move to America.

Hello, my name is Taylor and I am sixteen years old. I have been in several plays when I was in elementary and middle school, I love to act and I always have ever since I was little. Whenever I am acting a part I always give in to the emotions and it's as if I feel what the character is feeling. It's so interesting to see what types of personalities and styles that they have, and it just amazes me how real they can seem to you and to the audience that witnesses it from a distance.

Hi. My name is Cierra. I have always dreamed about becoming an actress and a singer. I absolutely love to sing and act! I am very good at singing. I am in choir and I absolutely love it! I love acting! My favorite movie series and book series are The Twilight Saga and the HARRY POTTER series! I have memorized the train scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone ( when Emma Watson's character, Hermione Granger, comes in). My friends and many other people say I sound just like Emma Watson in that scene! Acting and singing are my passion! I know this is what I want to do with my life!

Hi, I've been practicing acting since I was 10 years old. I am confident that I can be a professional actor in film and television. I even watch movies and practice some of the characters dialouge, personalities, and even their style.

Not only am I into acting, but I also learned to play guitar, piano, and steel drums. Soon I will learn more instruments. I think I would be one of the best actors/musicians ever, but I will not let my guard down.

whats up everyone. if you read this, know that im the best actor the world can ask for. i have had no experience on tv but i have in plays. my first audition for a school play, my very first one i had to do it in front of my peers, and when i was finished, i saw that jaws have dropped, and eyes were popping out do to the emotion, i had brought up, and how i gave my character life. i know they will take me if they find me, but the big problem is that its hard to be found. i need to get my name out there, and maybe one day ill be one of the biggest names in hollywood. i wont do it for the money, ill only do it because ever since i was little i wanted to be famous, and i still do, and im 16.

Hey im 13 years old and have been interested in acting and singing ever since I was like 5 or younger. I was in a church play in the main role and I always love writing scripts and acting them out with my friends. Sometimes I'd be in my room and act out a scene I saw on tv (: My friends and parents always tell me I have an amazing singing voice and that I am great at acting. I am from a state that people probably wouldn't get recognized from that easily, but everyday i keep telling myself that i can do this and that this year i am going to try harder. There was a time I went to the mall and I wasnt even dressed up like all the other girls at this modeling thing. They had a runway and people were all dressed up in makeup. All I had on was my abercrombie shirt, capris, and sneakers....and I made it to the finals. They told me I had a great smile, personality, very confident, and that i have naturally good looks. That made me feel good because I knew that would help me out. I am not really looking for modeling though, just acting. And Ive also been to many modeling agencies and they all want me in it, but Id never really have that much money for it. I want to ask you to please send me casting information and help me get discovered that would make my biggest dream come true.

I want to become like Miranda Cosgrove and start my acting career while I'm still young. I want badly to get offered a chance to be discovered but I live in Hudson, Oh and we dont have the money for me to go to California to try to start my acting career. I love to make people laugh and acting is my passion. Each day passes by and I become restless I want to act for others so badly and want them to see my true talent I've already been to and audition it went well but I didn't get the 3rd callback, so please if you can give me any information of casting that might help me be discovereed I would be forever grateful.

My name is Brenda. I`m 15 years old and I live in Los Angeles CA. When I was 8 I got discovered for my AMAZING acting. But my mom turned them down TWICE because she thought I was too young to become famous and was concerned. Ever since I have wanted to fullfill my dream again so I hope that I can get my wish soon. I really do.

I'm 16 and a junior in high school never acted, but I'm very good at making people laugh and i was thinking of doing stand up/ Acting/ improv for starters and getting my name out. Me and my family are low on income I'm not looking at acting as a way out, its just that i have a desire for some reason to act. I have no previous experience in acting. I'm new to this game. But is it to late to start at 16? Ive done my homework and i see that most "actors" are born with middle class parents who can afford acting lessons and taking them all over to make their kids known. My mom and sis are all i have. And we have trouble making it. But through our odds we're making it. Also say i did get it, my family cant move to Hollywood or New York. If your in a low income family then what happens were do you go? Anyway I'm in band right and i play the drums i was going to change one of my electives to drama class. And beginning my career their. Before i wanted to be an actor i wanted to be a doctor or a video game designer. I figure that if i had to choose between those i should choose the one ill most enjoy. So what if you were in my shoes. what would you do?

P.S. this letter is to help me figure out what i should do and thank you for your time.
